Q. How do I make my site available to students?


NILE sites are unavailable to students until made available by the tutor. This is so that staff can prepare content before releasing the site for the start of the academic year.

Padlock icon

When in 'edit mode' you can make your site available by clicking the 'Padlock' icon at the top of your page so it shows as 'open'.
